Flamingo Smooches by AmandaDrage Flamingo Smooches by AmandaDrage
Okay that's not what it is at all. If it was, I'd be concerned about the one with his eyes open, checking out the rest of the talent instead of concentrating on his lady. Tsk. (And how sexist of me)

Speedpaint, probably about 3ish hours max, oils, 7x10". Christmas commission requested by ~jubbliful and ~carlnewton. This one is now in Louisiana, where I think the reference photo was taken.

:) Thank you! The leaves didn't show up very well in the photo... I have the worst time getting photos of things.

Very beautiful, once again! I really like this loose-ish style on this one. It's detailed as well, but it seems to be an almost "refreshed" detail, since it's not so tight. (Lol, does that make any sense? :XD:)

:D Thank you! I like to try and strike a balance between detail and looseness. Yes, it does make sense :XD:

I like the subtle leaves in the background, it suggests a wild environment for these lovely birds :)
